From the Wolves: Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love suffered a mild concussion and neck strain in last night’s game at Denver, and stayed overnight at a hospital for precautionary reasons. After further evaluation today, Love’s diagnosis remains unchanged and he has been cleared to return to Minneapolis. He will not play in tonight’s game vs. […]

Ricky Rubio is all smiles during this injury

Ricky Rubio has been at this a long time. He’s grown up in front of the press due to his professional career beginning when he was 14 years old. He’s as savvy as just about any NBA player when it comes to understanding what the fans and media all want and expect from the stars […]

Life after Ricky

Ricky, we already miss you. Its hard to tell if Saturday’s performance against the Hornets was simply the product of an emotional hangover or if its simply what we can expect from the post-Ricky Wolves. Either way, it was an unlovely melange of poor shot selection, stagnant ball-movement and listless, unaware defense. As Rick Adelman […]

Malcolm Lee goes under the knife

Malcolm Lee’s pro career has gotten off to a bummer of a start. From the Timberwolves: Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malcolm Lee underwent successful surgery this morning to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. Timberwolves team orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Fischer performed the surgery at TRIA Orthopaedic Center. The typical recovery time for this […]

Martell Webster out indefinitely

From the Wolves: The Minnesota Timberwolves announced today that guard Martell Webster is out indefinitely as he recovers from microdiscectomy surgery that was performed on Sept. 28.

Michael Beasley Offensive Flowchart

The title speaks for itself. These seem to be the options lately for whenever Michael Beasley catches the ball on the perimeter. Share this because Rubio would pass this along:

Anthony Tolliver taking his talents to the bench

There’s been another entry into the Wolves revolving door of injuries. As Martell Webster and Jonny Flynn make their way back from the mend, down goes Tolliver. Our friend Ray Richardson from the Star Tribune breaks the bad news. Minnesota Timberwolves forward Anthony Tolliver will miss the next 6-8 weeks to recover from a knee […]

Jonny Flynn heading to D-League

As has been long-rumored, Jonny Flynn will put in a rehab stint with the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Flynn will most likely play in both games of the Skyforce’s weekend back-to-back against the Reno Bighorns and the Iowa Energy. Both of those names are amazing. Here is Flynn’s response, according to Jerry Zgoda at the Star-Tribune: […]

Timberwolves return to reality, fall to Hawks

Lost in the the euphoria over Kevin Love’s 31-31 game and the Wolves’ recent two-game winning streak, plus the carnival of horrors that preceded all of this has been the fact that the Wolves have been fairly well carved up by injuries. Because of mostly solid work by Sebastian Telfair, Luke Ridnour and Wesley Johnson, […]

Martell Webster's back hurts

Bad enough to have surgery this morning apparently, says a Wolves’ press release. The surgery is called a microdiscectomy. This means it is a small discectomy (never even been to medical school!) The release goes on to tell us that “no timetable for Webster’s return has been established, but the typical recovery time for this […]
